Caity Gyorgy (pronounced like George) is a Toronto and Montreal-based vocalist who is known for singing bebop and swing music. Being called one of JazzFM91’s 8 Canadian Women in Jazz You Need to Know, Caity has performed at popular clubs and jazz festivals across Canada including the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Calgary Jazz Festival, The TU Jazz Festival, the Brampton Jazz Festival, and the Jazz Bistro. Caity has also worked and recorded with many luminaries in the Canadian jazz scene including Allison Au, Pat LaBarbera, Jocelyn Gould, and Pat Collins.
In addition to performing, Caity runs an Instagram account entitled “@Liftaday” where she has gained global recognition from her transcription videos that are viewed daily by thousands of people. She has posted over 180 videos since 2018.
Caity composes music that sounds like the jazz repertoire of the 50s and 60s. Her arrangements and compositions often feature her own vocal improvisation, which is one of her defining skills. She has released one EP, several singles, and released her debut album “No Bounds”, which features guitarist Jocelyn Gould on January 22nd, 2021. She is releasing an EP of original music arranged for a large ensemble under the Brooklyn-based label La Reserve on July 9th, 2021.
